F1 » Will Melbourne backers get better deal now..?

The cancellation - or postponement - of the Bahrain Grand Prix might have thrust Melbourne unexpectedly into the spotlight as the new F1 2011 curtain-raiser, but could there be headaches to follow Down Under..?

2 race's in Australia?why can't we have 2 here in Great Britain instead? Remember Donnington 1993,it was one of the best race's ever more pit stops than any other race that i can think of,those were the days.

What is it with Collyer Bristow? Every time something happens, Crash.net has them come up with a legal opinion as to what might or might not transpire as a result! Anyone would think they were sponsoring the site or something...

What an absolute crock of ****e! Now if a sponsor missed a race I could understand the possibility of some fiscal penalty to the team in question, however, and bear with me, the rescheduling of an already existing race, meaning another race has all of a sudden become more marketable, means those said existing advertisers (sponsors) have to pay more? What a load of codswallop! No contract would have 1) foreseen what happened with Bahrain and 2) believed that such action would warrant an increase in sponsors contribution. Seriously, if that possibility was brought to the table during commercial negotiations, there goes the sponsor.
"Ah, excuse me Mr Rich Corporation, if an event is cancelled for unforseen circumstances, we expect you to pay more for the same product!" Puhlease!!!!!

This article could be a third of it's size if it didnt keep repeating itself.

A classic crash.net article goes like this:-

Mr x says F1 is rubbish
Mr x has said that "f1 is rubbish"

All eyes are on Mr X as he said in public that F1 is 'rubbish'
"F1 is rubbish" said Mr x "And you can quote me on that"

Is F1 rubbish? Click here for a pointless voting system.
